This Weekend~April 12~Be a D.E.A.R.

Today is D.E.A.R. DayDrop Everything And Read Day–a day designed to remind folks of all ages to make reading a priority.

Grab a book and a big chair or a Kindle and a comfy cushion and get ready to read, preferable with someone or to someone!

Although I am not a librarian, here are a few suggestions:

So Few of Me by Peter Reynolds~Leo’s list of things to do keeps growing, until one day he wishes, “If only there were two of me.” As he gets his wish, life becomes more complicated, not less complicated.

So Few of Me Book Cover

The Dot by Peter Reynolds–A teacher first uses wit, then subtle yet clever encouragement to inspire her student Vahti to go beyond her insecurities and become, in the words of a younger boy who “can’t” draw either, “a really great artist.”

Sky Color by Peter Reynolds. Marisol loves to paint. So when her teacher asks her to help make a mural for the school library, she can’t wait to begin! But how can Marisol make a sky without blue paint?

Author Peter H. Reynolds offers a gentle, playful reminder that if we keep our hearts open and look beyond the expected, creative inspiration will come.

and that is also a timely reminder for this weekend!

What are you going to read this weekend?

Happy D.E.A.R. Day!

  1. Love it that you are recommending book to read!! Another recommended by my Craig librarian sister is “How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous”. Laced with humor but some of the stories will really surprise you, and make you very glad you live in the age of medical advances.
